Research

My PhD research investigated the recognition, diagnosis and management of Coeliac Disease in New Zealand. It involved survey work and analysis of laboratory data, both of which research modalities continue to interest me. I am particularly interested in research that can be used to inform and, where necessary change the practice of clinicians in General Practice.

My second area of research interest is in Medical Education, with a focus on assessment.

Additional details

Teaching commitments and interests

I am heavily involved in the teaching of undergraduate medical students in the Advanced Learning in Medicine programme (years 4 - 6), with an emphasis on the practice of medicine in the primary care setting. My focus is on guiding these students to become good doctors, using the skills necessary to provide good primary care as the vehicle for their learning. I also have interests in assessment of medical student learning, and how we can do that robustly.
